“Weekend Break”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Excellent all round and a great break from Saudi Arabia. From the drive in to the drive out every member of staff is very friendly and professional. As others say it is attached to the large City Center Mall with great shopping, many restaurants, and movies on your doorstep. The rooms are quite wonderfully unique with a plate glass see through wall surrounding the bath and shower area but of course the toilet glass wall is opaque. Bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet. We have not tried the Hotel restaurants so cannot comment. The lounge bar on the Mezzanine floor is a little smokey in the bar area but they have some great privacy areas with TV's in most and away from the bar. We have really enjoyed our breaks there and will most certainly go back.

Room Tip: Check in early, but that goes for most hotels. We have stayed both on the sea view side and the free...

Dear Guest,

We boast 6 food & beverage outlets throughout both towers offering a wide range of delicious food created by our talented culinary team, and this month, we are excited to add one more restaurant to the mix: our new Arabic restaurant, Baharat. We would be delighted to have you visit our restaurants and lounges on your next stay.

We stayed at the Kempenski Grand hotel which is attached to the City Center mall. The mall is one of the nicest in the region, with a water park, great shopping and dining, plus the movie theater. If you plan on visiting Bahrain to do some shopping, or for your kids to enjoy the entertainment facilities, then this is a great hotel. If your objective is to enjoy great water views, quiet beach, relaxation, then you should stay in one of the beach resort hotels.

First the location is perfect, plus the mall entrance from the lobby made it easy to go back and forth from the hotel and the mall.
Second the rooms where big, which I really enjoyed.
So overall I would come back again for sure, definitely

Stayed briefly last month, excellent hotel with very nice facilities. Rooms are large and well appointed. Excellent service from all of the staff throughout. A really high standard in the meeting facilities, easy to book and very well looked after by the team. It's still pretty new and not the easiest location to get to so there is little passing trade so it's pretty quiet.

Yesterday I took my girl for ' high tea " I booked for 3 pm and when seated I was told 10 to 15 minutes it would take ( I couldn't understand as nothing is cooked ). 45 minutes later it came. The t spoon fronts directly onto the City Mall and with squawking children about the ambience was zero.

The food was ok but for 16 BD a head I expected more.

Dear Guest,

I would like to personally thank you for your comments. I understand your disappointment with our service at T-Spoon, and appreciate your constructive feedback. Let me assure you that this is not the standard of service that we aim to provide.

After conducting an internal inquiry we found the reason for the delayed service. This was due to a mishap and miscommunication in the kitchen. Your Afternoon Tea was prepared by one of the chefs and unfortunately as it was being taken to be served to you it fell on the floor. The chef in question did not communicate this to the T-Spoon service staff in appropriate manner and therefore the service staff didn’t know that he had to prepare another Afternoon Tea and that it would take some time.

We appreciate your continued patronage of T-Spoon and would like to invite you and your girl to enjoy another Afternoon Tea with our compliments. Please contact our Director of Food & Beverage Mr Sander Ackermans directly at sander.ackermans@kempinski.com to reserve your Afternoon Tea in advance. We look forward to welcoming you and your girl again soon.

Yours sincerely,

Puneet Singh
General Manager
